Wellcome Trust Intermediate Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine (deadline: 30th November 2017)

This scheme helps mid-career researchers from low- and middle-income countries establish independent research programmes in those countries. The scheme aims to support research that will improve public health and tropical medicine at a local, national and global level.

Wellcome TrustYou can apply for an Intermediate Fellowship in Public Health and Tropical Medicine if you’re a researcher based in a low- or middle-income country and have an eligible sponsoring organisation in a low- or middle-income country that will administer the fellowship for the full duration of the award. You should be driving your own research and be ready to lead an independent research programme.

You can apply if:

  • you’re a national of a low- or middle-income country
  • you have a PhD or a degree in medicine and are qualified to enter higher specialist training
  • you have significant research experience
  • you have made important contributions to your area of research eg publications, patents, software development or an impact on health policy or practice.

If you don’t have a PhD or degree in medicine, we may still consider you if you have a first or Master’s degree and can show substantial research experience.

Your research proposal should focus on one of the areas within our public health and tropical medicine remit. Research can include laboratory-based molecular analysis of field or clinical samples, but we don't usually consider projects focused solely on studies in vitro or using animal models.

The funding is awarded during 5 years (you can apply for renewal after this time) and covers salary and research expenses covered.
